In 2 weeks time I'm going to make the pilgrimage of cycling up Alp d'Huez (with others). To ensure that I've 'been there, done it and got the T shirt', what are the key things to tick off (finish point, drink in a bar, cheesy phot, T shirt etc etc) so that I don't return home having missed something and beating myself to death (so long as I survive the climb). I've got a spare day in that area, so are there any of the other numerous climbs worth doing (Galibier, Croix de Fer)? Any 'pitfalls'? I heard of someone blowing all their inner tubes on the descent by braking too much.
